Ski Dreams... the worst kind.

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Maybe too much information. Had a dream last night that I showed up at the ski slope with no pants on. Damn!

But that wasn't the bad part. I was at the top of the slope. No pants. There was a very fresh layer of powder, smooth as cream, light as feathers. The bad part - I only had my old narrow 1978 skis with me. I struggled with if I could make it down the deep powder on the narrow skis. Yes.... a troubling dream.

BTW - skied two weeks ago, hiked up, skied down, fourth time since the end of ski season. So, an irrational mind? Yes, afraid so. But, I am going to start wearing pants to bed.

Hmmmm.....I had a ski dream last night too (though I can't remember much), but I wasn't missing pants, and didn't see anyone who was.

mmh old narrow (long) skis, beeing without pants, deep smooth powder, light as feathers (in a featherbed?) - dr. freud probably would diagnose skiing has a phallic aspect for male skieres ...

Asiling Dream Interpretation info:

1 - A male number indicating a request to develop ones individuality / creativity or indicating that the dreamer is selfish with respect to the subject matter of the dream.

9 - This number is not very common in dreams and indicates that the dreamer is Spiritually advanced. It is a request that the dreamer follow their life purpose because within this lifetime they can finish with learning the lessons of the Earth. These people would find themselves naturally drawn to learning about Spiritual matters.

7 - This number always indicates Spiritual Enlightenment. Our Spiritual Center is our 7th Chakra. For example, a dream where you catch the number 37 bus to Church is a request to commit (number 3) yourself to developing your Spiritual side (number 7 and church). Paying $47 for something indicates that the dreamer is limiting (number 4) their Spiritual nature (number 7) by not putting enough energy (paying for something) into developing it.

8 -This number 8 is a perfectly balance symbol (imagine it on its side ¥) and indicates expansion through balance (infinity symbol = expansion). It also features in dreams about the circulatory system (8 is two circles).


Naked – In public: Show your true nature, be yourself

The Four Rules of Interpretation:

1. Everything Is Me
For the beginner, this is probably the most difficult aspect of dreams to accept. Dreams of family members, friends, enemies, - all represent various aspects of the dreamer's personality - e.g. ideas, emotions, hopes, fears, ideals, etc..
Solid things such as houses, buildings, cars, etc. reflect the physical body. For example, the structure of a house being shown in bad repair indicates poor health in present or future time

Symbols of fire in dreams, such as fire, bombs, electricity, etc. represent the dreamers emotions. For example, a dream in which lightning is striking and causing damage to a house is demonstrating how negative emotions (lightning) are affecting the dreamer's physical health (structure of house being damaged).

Air, atmosphere or the interior of a room show the dreamer’s state of mind. For example, a dark gloomy room would be a depressed personality while a dirty, dingy room would indicate a negative or angry mind.

Water symbols i.e. sea, rivers, lakes, canals, etc. reflect the spiritual or cultural life of the dreamer. How water appears or is organized indicates the dreamer's philosophy of life. A river indicates the dreamer needs a more free spiritual flow. A canal or swimming pool, both man made structures, indicates man-made or conventional ideals are restricting the dreamer's Spiritual flow. A lake or pool indicates that the dreamer does not have a spiritual outlet. The sea or ocean indicates the dreamer's spirituality / life is the subject matter. Diving into the any body of water is a request for the dreamer to get into life. The state of the water can also indicate the condition of the dreamer's blood. Polluted water indicates a need to cleanse the blood by a change of diet and/or improved elimination

Since everything in the dream is an aspect of the dreamer we must always consider what aspects are represented by
•Objects, Location
•Adults, Children, Animals
•Colors, Emotions
•Activities, Puns

2. Cause and Effect
All the symbols in dreams are linked to show cause and effect. Apparently UN-connected things - people, emotions and events are linked in a chain of cause and effect. In other words find a symbol to show the cause of the dreamer's problem and another symbol to illustrate the effect. This is important because if the effect is not being experienced in the present time then it will be in the future.
You can also use this rule to show why the dreamer is ill, depressed, cannot get on with their spouse, boss, partner or why their career is not getting off the ground.

3. Personal Responsibility
This rule can be quite difficult to grasp but the rule does not vary. The dreamer is ALWAYS responsible for what happened, is happening, can happen or will happen in the dream. For example, in dreams we find all kinds of apparent accidents, blockages to progress, etc. which inhibit movement. On the surface these SEEM to be outside our control but when we apply this rule we find that we are responsible for our own progress. Look for delays at an airport (meaning reluctance to get a new project off the ground) or roadblocks or obstructions in the path (meaning reluctance to clear obstacles to progress).

4. Avoidance
Look for what the dreamer is trying to avoid in the dream. This is what he needs to accept or face up to in waking life. Dreams try to create wholeness or completeness in the dreamer by drawing scattered aspects of his personality together. For example, a person in real life may separate himself from his emotions and in the dream he may still try to avoid them. His dreams will insist that he accept these and all other aspects of his personality. Similarly, dreams ask the dreamer to face his fears. In this way he can come to terms with them and heal them.

I don't buy it mud. It seems to me that the author of that was probably quite self absorbed, to come up with and publish something like that.

My ski dreams usually revolove around getting to the hill and forgetting equipment, though usually not my pants. I've had a couple of dreams where I'm walking along the highway to the ski area (I-70 in MD) carrying my ski gear, and I realize I had forgotten my boots or something else. Now, mind you, if this were reality, it would have taken my a full day or more to walk that far, and another full day of walking to get to the ski area. Why I'm walking along the interstate carrying ski gear to go skiing is beyond me. Plus, the weather in those dreams never seems cold enough to ski.

My other ski dreams are usually just reflections of past experiences living and skiing in Colorado. Those are the good ones.

I am not saying I totally buy the Asiling rap, but I found it interesting. Applied to Ruxpercnd's dream it would appear to mean that there is something wonderful right in front of him but he can't allow himself to take it because of some old shit he is holding onto. Something is keeping him from being himself. Sounds like a classic uncompleted gestalt, maybe from 1978.

On the otherhand, your dream sounds like you need to buy a new car so you can get to the ski area on time with all your gear.

Hmmmm.... As much as I'd like to go with that angle, I have a very reliable Dodge Dakota 4dr, 4WD, pickup with a cap/shell on the bed, which fits more gear than I'll ever need. On the other hand, I haven't had the dream in a while (since before I got this truck). But then again, my last ski vehicle, a Chevy Blazer was also reliable.

I think the dream may have more to do with my desire to go skiing, but my inability to get there due to "other" issues. These days, the issue is kids. Maybe my fear that one day, my wife will try to limit my skiing? Who knows : . The interesting thing about the dream, is that even though I realize I'm missing some piece of gear, I keep walking toward the ski area, wondering what I'm going to do once I get there. Heck, maybe it's my "you can't stop me from skiing, no matter what" attitude kicking in. I think I usually have the dream during the summers. Maybe the long road/walk is the long wait until next season?

John: I was just kidding about your dream. I'm just an armchair psychologist so it is pretty much all bs anyway, but if I had to guess about yours it sounds like you were not happy with your situation. Everyone is driving by while you are walking carrying your gear, some of which is missing. You don't turn back because you are heading in the right direction, but you don't like how you're getting there. Your "vehicle" is deficient and you feel like you don't have your act together and everyone else appears to be doing it better, but I would guess that description sounds like pretty much all of us at one time or another.

Look at the bright side, at least you've got your pants on.

Just a random thought.

So why do people have dreams of being in public with no pants? Seems to be common.
post #12 of 22
Definetly have the I'm at the mountain, it's snowing and I forgot my gloves or goggles or boots etc dreams. Sometimes have the I'm on old skinny 217 DH boards on a super steep, icy chute and all I can to is cross my tips and can't ski. But it's great when you have a good skiing dream which is what I have to settle for in the summer.

The night after I first skied Patrol Bowl at Loveland, I had a dream where I skied over the dropoff at full speed, then fell, fell, fell.....then I woke up. I'll never know if I stuck the landing or not.

I was at the counter of this ski store (not one I recognize). I noticed all the skis were gone! I said, "Wwhere are the skis?" They had been replaced! There appeared a giant above ground pool of beautiful design, a plastic canoe a "jeans" model of questionable design, and other summer stuff. That's when the dream became too terrifying and I woke up.

Time to live the dream.
Put on your helmet, put off your pants, and "make it down the deep powder..".

Don't be so defensive. You know you want to.
